private state law and provisions about equality in the constitution that have been active as civil rights laws. so it influences private law. so there could be a market for privacy. so they come along and say we will make it easierfor you. and then facebook had to modify things and so forth. so what i am suggesting is a type of touchstone. before i buy an iphone, i give consideration to all the security. anywhere you go on the web, when it's not protected -- if you think about things like that the people might hold as private. >> you do a lot of coverage around the intersection of technology. does this seem like a real step forward to you? can you talk about your reaction? >> well, i think it speaks to the problems at this point. a lot of judges interpret the law around these technologies and don't always understand the technology. many have found that there are expressions are under around her e-mail and law enforcement can only get that technological issue straightened out. many would say that it is upsetting. in terms of trying to apply everything -- i mean, the constitution is

actually issued a ruling that really limited the due process rights in civil commitments, and really looked at it, contemplated it as an extension of the existing criminal sentence. but it hasn't stopped the litigation, but there is a lot of work that needs to be done still in civil commitment issues. and so, it's kind of an ongoing project. it exists in a host of different context. i don't know if you're talking about a different context, but people civilly committed for sex offenses, people committed because of mental illness. and there are a range of issues that the aclu has been working on with partner groups, actually address and raise the due process concerned around civil commitment. >> can you explain something about the philosophy behind in incarceration, and why -- what is the idea behind isolating a person so acutely? >> so one of the -- aside from the campaigned in overincarceration at the aclu, like so they can -- big campaigns, but another one is a campaign to stop use of solitary or at least significant curb its use. we have been very active the last seven years litiga

the lawyers' committee for civil rights under law which runs the election protection coalition. the election protection cohiggs was founded roughly right after the election debacle in 2000 in florida, and we've been operating election protection as a program ever since and really our first operation was in 2001. we are composed of 150 nationwide, statewide, local, grassroots organizations that are supplemented by the resources of 200 law firms. we, this last election we operated 28 call-in centers, we had on of the-ground operations in over 80 jurisdictions, we had 5,300 legal volunteers and roughly 2,300 grass roots vols tiers -- volunteers. this, as you can imagine, i'm very grateful for this opportunity to comment on the recent 2012 elections. the lawyers' committee will actually be issuing more election protection, a major report this month. so in two weeks you should be able to access our analysis based on the roughly, you know, 190,000 calls we received, the grassroots reports from these 80 jurisdictions and everything else. our basic conclusion may be different than what you

involved in the civil rights movement. others have been working in the movement since 1961. i.t. is about it now. he had not come to baker county to help get the movement started there. but once my father, who was a leader in the community with murder, that was one thing that brought everyone together, and they were ready when they came in to help us, the baker county movement. >> wow. what's the interesting part to me is in the book you really write about the way that the legacy impacts you. so you talk about the fact that when that happened, the black children lost father by friends found themselves living in this no man's land and we didn't get the chance to really feel the price of those young folks paid in order for us to be where we are. we know it intellectually, but we don't get to see that. and that is something that the book really does beautifully. >> we started the movement in june of 1965. in august of 1965, about 15 others and my sister decided to integrate the white schools. i can remember the first day. i had graduated and was going off to college in september. and w
